Who: "Pride" magazine CEO and publisher Dee Dixon at the Lowe’s Pride Awards gala.

Wearing:A dress she bought at a boutique in Athens during a recent trip to Greece.

Why:As hostess of the annual awards gala, Dixon puts special effort into what she wears to the event. The color looked fantastic on her, the spray of sparkles were on-trend and looked dramatic while she was on stage presenting the awards, and the fact she bought it abroad fit perfectly with the gala’s global theme.

Who: Lan Diep Smith and Irina Toshkova, director of the New Gallery of Modern Art, at the Mint Museum Uptown reception for artist Jun Kaneko.

Wearing: Toshkova is in a dress from Anthropologie.

Why: They both represent two current looks: neutral tones and a statement necklace (on Smith) and Toshkova’s bold floral print.

Who: Miyako Watanabe and her husband Satoshi, an executive with Wells Fargo, at the Mint Museum Uptown reception for artist Jun Kaneko.

Wearing: Miyako is in a traditional Japanese kimono with an obi belt and fan.

Why: It’s lovely and interesting when you see someone at an event wearing attire that’s unique to their culture.

Who: Marty Klontz at the Ambassador’s Ball.

Wearing: A Noir by Lazaro gown from J. Major’s Bridal Boutique.

Why: Klontz turned heads in this mermaid-style gown. The fact that she bought it at a bridal boutique is a reminder that those are great places to shop for special occasion dresses for any event, not just weddings.
